I enjoy writing apocalyptic fiction, zombie apocalypse being my favorite subgenre! This story has action, despair, hope, humanity within atrocity, and a lot of zombies! If you take the time to read this part, I hope you enjoy (it has 8 parts, 8800 words, in total)!
No one visited the city anymore. There were no more shopping sprees at high-end stores, no more downtown pizza slices, no more tours of the space center. People weren’t strolling around museums admiring the work of artists now long-forgotten. They fled for their lives. Some even made it out. Like everywhere else in the world, Houston was strewn with blood and bodies, haunted by the screams of those who perished, seized by the beasts many of those people became. Most survivors stayed away from the city, terrified of the ravenous horde whose mass grew with every unfinished meal. If you dared enter, you better have had a good enough reason.
“Het-heta…” Lionel’s face twisted as he conjured a completely wrong pronunciation of my genetic condition. I knew what he was doing. Stalling was his most impressive talent—that and touching his nose with his tongue.
Not before chuckling did I step in. Could you blame me? It was the end of the world. Video games were a thing of the past, as were many things. I wasn’t going to find entertainment the way I used to. “Heterochromia,” I corrected, “and don’t change the subject.” I pulled the left side of the Kevlar vest to secure the Velcro.
The apocalypse introduced a type of fashion all its own: Kevlar, duct tape, and steel toe boots. Thin layers and exposed skin were risks I wasn’t willing to take, and luckily, Lionel understood. He wore whatever I asked him to. Had the vest been smaller, it would’ve been on him instead of me.
He handed me the tape, then squeezed his stuffed lion. “I’m not changing the subject.”
“You so are.” I ripped off a couple strips of tape and wrapped them around the ends of my pantlegs.
He frowned. “You don’t have to go, Chris. We can find food another way.” His wide, innocent eyes appeared larger behind his thick-rimmed glasses, his quivering lip enticing me to stay.
“This is the only way, Leo,” I replied, ripping off two more strips to wrap around my wrists. “There’s no food for miles.”
Lionel and I didn’t start this journey together. It used to be me and my sister. Before radios went silent, there were reports of a refuge in Stonewall, a small town somewhere between San Antonio and Austin. Survivors are welcome, was what the broadcast said. As long as nobody’s infected. I convinced my sister to leave the apartment. I convinced her we’d be okay, that we’d get there and start a new life. Had I not turned on the radio…
Had I not turned on the radio, Lionel would still be on his own, or worse.
I found him hiding in a closet a week after I lost my sister. He was starved and dirty, terrified and alone. His babysitter told him to wait for his parents, who were at work when things went, well, crazy. When I asked how long he’d been waiting, he didn’t have an answer. He was only seven, too young, too weak to fight the monsters of the world. I couldn’t leave him, not like that.
Stonewall was a few day’s walk from where we were. We were so close. But we didn’t have enough food or water to make it, so going into the city was the only choice, even if Lionel didn’t believe it.
“Alright.” I stood. “While I’m gone, what’re the rules?”
Lionel scrunched his nose, and in a well-rehearsed voice said, “Don’t go outside. Stay quiet. If I hear anything, hide.”
“Good.” I hooked the holster around my waist, sheathed my knife, and slipped my backpack over my shoulders. “I’ll be back soon,” I said, heading for the door.
“What do I do if you aren’t?” he mumbled.
I straightened, then turned around. “You’ve never asked me that before.”
He walked over to me and looked up, his eyes trembling. “You’ve never gone into the city before.”
I bit my lip. I hated leaving him, I did, but bringing him wasn’t an option. “I always come back, Leo. Always.”
I grinned and tousled his dirt-matted, overgrown hair, coaxing a small smile out of him. “Promise.”

I hate the new update for android the ability to tap on the seekbar was great and to remove it out of the blue is unfair to everyone who liked it they didn't even do it right once you drag it that is the start point for the video.

2020.10.22 14:37 Dreadstarks TWO DAYS?!
12th Day of the Fifth Moon, 383 AC
Stark Manse, King’s Landing
Kayn Stark gasped back to the waking realm, his mouth completely dry and his body desperate for water and a chamber pot. When he attempted to rise, he collapsed on the floor and needed to use a table to lift himself. When he was finally up, the former bastard rushed to his chamberpot relieve himself.
After what felt like several minutes, he finished and went to his table where he sat down and drank water directly from the pitcher that had been left by his steward on the table. Nearly half of it he gulped down before putting it back and drawing in gulps of air. Kayn sighed and fell back into his seat. Just then, a steward rushed in having heard the clammer.
“Yer awake, milord! Thank the gods!”
“How long was I asleep?” Kayn asked him.
“Two days, milord. We’ve letters for you. One from Lord Reed and another from Master Glover.”
The steward rushed out of the room and brought the letters back. He read the letter from Master Glover first, it expanded on what he knew from his dream so he set it aside to bring to the Red Keep. The one from the Reed appeared to have just arrived. As Kayn read it over, he started to laugh.
“Swamp King? With three hundred men?!” The bastard chuckled. “Well, your Grace, let’s see just how powerful you are when you’re treated as an independent realm.”
Kayn wrote letters that would fly to every Northern House first, likely informing them of what they already knew.
My lords of the North,
House Reed has broken faith with the Starks and North. Theomore laughably declares himself Swamp King. Well he can hangs his swamp so long as he and his piddly force can hold it. By order of my father, House Reed is hereby declared traitors to the realm and those who engage them are absolved of any of the codes of chivalry typically applied in warfare. Any man who brings the head of Theomore Reed to the foot of Lord Jon Stark shall be graciously rewarded. A new Lord of the Neck will be named at the end of this conflict
Kayn Stark, Written on order of Lord Jon Stark
The next letters were written to the Ironborn, many of whom were kin to the Starks. If Lord Reed truly was a king, he was not entitled to the protections guaranteed by the realm.
My Lords of the Iron Islands,
Lord Theomore Reed has declared himself King of the Neck, thus absolving him of not only the protection of House Stark but also the Crown itself. This, of course, means that they are legal targets for reaving. Even better, the shit filled swamp they call home has only three hundred men protecting it.
So long as they remain in their state of rebellion, you are encouraged to treat them as you would an independent realm.
Kayn Snow, Written on order of Lord Jon Stark
The final letters flew to the Riverlords and Lady Baelish.
My Lords of the Riverlands,
Lord Theomore Stark has declared himself King of the Neck, thus dissolving his vassular contract with House Stark. Henceforth, House Reed and its allies will not be granted protection by House Stark and all Northmen engaging with House Reed and its allies are freed from codes of chivalry in warfare. As a proclaimed independent realm, the Neck will likely be the target of Ironborn raiding for the duration of this conflict. A new Lord of the Neck will be installed when this conflict is over.
Kayn Stark, Written on order of Lord Jon Stark
“See that these are copied and mailed at once. It will be a lot of ravens. I need to go to the Red Keep.”
“Yes, milord.” The steward said, taking the letters and calling for scribes to help him copy them.

my ideas were: a poison mechanic/ poison champs...this can bring out singed, Cassiopeia, and twitch as possible champ cards and their affects could be related to poisoning or damaging enemies over time...so potentially lowering their health after being attacked and killing the enemy into the next round unless healed...or having a silencing effect on the enemy card that defends against them...basically a stat or life cutting effect...or perhaps a new effect where the enemy card owner can't use a spell or effect to empoweheal the card in anyway(kind of like how Cassiopeia's and singed have abilities in game that ground the enemy and prevent them from using certain spells and abilities
second idea was bringing Udyr into the mix as a champ...and his champ ability would revolve around having to manage space in your hand just as u have to manage his mana consumption...and that's because every turn u get to choose between 4 1 cost cards cards which would represent his 4 stances by their effects...which get buffed once he levels up after using a certain amount of those cards....tiger stances increases his power...turtle gives him tough or life steal or regen on to his own health...bear stance stuns 1 enemy card....phoenix damages 1 to all enemies like twisted fates red card spell in game
